MacroLan is an Internet Services Provider (ISP) and managed services provider which, according to SEACOM, will now become their Cape Town regional office.
MacroLan manages an expanding fibre network serving a growing number of Cape Town’s commercial users. It also owns and manages fibre infrastructure and access at numerous commercial buildings.
“SEACOM has grown significantly following the successful launch of SEACOM Business which focuses on bringing broadband and cloud services directly to commercial business users. The MacroLan acquisition is a continuation of this story, through which we will grow the SEACOM family of talented staff and satisfied customers in the Western Cape,” said Byron Clatterbuck, CEO at SEACOM.
SEACOM expects MacroLan to lead its expansion in South Africa's Western Cape market for fibre Internet access.
“This transaction gives us the backing of a major pan-African telecom partner, in turn offering us access to the resources and muscle we need to grow our business. Our existing customers will continue to experience the same high levels of service to which they are accustomed, with the added benefit that our network will now integrate directly into SEACOM’s African networks and submarine cable investments,” said Paul Johnson, CEO at MacroLan.
